    Finally got around to making an underquilt. The blanket is from Kohls but its very similar to the Costco blankets. I had never used a sewing machine before so it took almost 7 hours to make but I'm very happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately I haven't had a good chance to try it out yet except a little bit inside but will post pics of it in action when I do.

    I followed these videos to make it.

    Looks like you did a good job on it, any idea the weight?
    Perfect summer weight quilt, added to my build list.

    As in the fill power? The package said 650 but it also said it was 60x80 and it was not quite 60x70 so who knows. :33:

    What is the total weight of the quilt?
    Looks like it’s light.

    Oops sorry. It weighs in at 1 lb 3 ounces. Several ounces is all the webbing and bungee cord that was added.
